1.0 out of 5 stars Poor Format January 8, 2012
The magazine and its content are very good however the implementation of the digital format on the Kindle Fire is poorly done. My one star is based 100% on the poor formatting.

Each page is shown as a full page on the Kindle Fire, you see the same page as printed in the magazine, only smaller, a lot smaller and way to small for reading. So you have to zoom and then manually move page around. You can only zoom in so far and thats it. The quality of the text when zoomed in is fuzzy.

Its disappointing that a technology publication (PC World) and Amazon could not get this right.

1.0 out of 5 stars Poor text quality - as though it has been scanned in December 31, 2011
By Mr
I subscribe to the Telegraph which is very high quality digital newspaper. It is that quality that highlights the low standard of this digital magazine. In 2011 I subscribed to the paper version of PC World. It's a good magazine. However, the digital version is not optimized in any way. Its very disappointing. Navigation is clunky. When zoomed in for reading, the text quality is poor (fuzzy with shadows). All in all frustrating. I will stick with the paper version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Overpriced January 20, 2012
I'd definitely prefer to have the native Kindle Fire version of PC World, but it is priced $10/year higher than the magazine's standard price for the Zinio-based digital edition (and, amazingly, $15/year more than the print version). Since Zinio works on the Fire, I can't justify that extra $10.

1.0 out of 5 stars Beware! September 20, 2013
By Tommy J
I was a subscriber to the magazine, then suddenly they went digital without warning. I downloaded the App for my Kindle. It is flaky. I finally got it to download an issure. Once you get logged in don't ever logout.

I download the August issue. Now the stupid app has gone crazy and I can't get the Sept issue.

PC World was once a nice mag. Now thanks to their stupid flacky app the mag is worthless... Seems to be no support...

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Mag for Kindle Fire HD February 22, 2013
By dr.igor
Firstly, there is some bad hype on other reviews for this product.

They state that it is not easily view-able on the kindle. At this time, that hype is exactly that, false.
This magazine come across crystal clear, just like all others that I have tried on my Kindle Fire HD.

I wish that it would zoom in just a little bit more, but, when the type is too small, a quick double tap puts it in the easy to read/customize (ebook like) format.

Second, the product is just pretty awesome for two bucks an issue. Between the reviews, commentary, and insight, it is well worth the money.

And as with all other kindle Mags there is a free 30 subscription, I don't think you can go wrong.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pleasently surprised February 11, 2012
By Ryan
Downloaded for kindle for iPad and it works great! After reading some of the negative reviews I wasn't going to risk the purchase, then I discovered I could cancel within 14 days if I didn't like it. As long as u stay in page view you're set, but don't take my word for it, test it out risk free :)

5.0 out of 5 stars love the interface January 17, 2014
Verified Purchase
I read reviews from over a year ago where folks complained that reading this on the kindle was cumbersome. So, instead of doing a subscription I purchased a single copy to see if this was still the case.

The magazine reads great on the Kindle Fire HD! I double tap to open a particular article and everything reads clear and easy. Pages turn well, and the font is clear and easy to read.

Next month I'll start my digital subscription.

5.0 out of 5 stars PCWorld Is What It Says January 7, 2014
Very informative technology magazine. It is exactly as its description. Also, works very well in digital content. I have it on my Kindle Fire HDX and I found no problems navigating through the issue. Easy to read and also easy to backtrack to different parts of the edition. A++++++++++++++++
